A Look into the Current Standardized Testing Policies for US Admissions
A blog for Meadowridge School and the educational community.
Grade 4 students had an ambitious goal, and they knew it would take the entire elementary school to help them achieve it. During a weeks-long campaign, students delivered speeches and wrote letters and plastered posters around the school, all with one big call to action for their peers: let’s build a wall against hunger!
Moms and dads, brothers and sisters, grandmas and grandpas, cats and dogs… lots of people (and pets!) make up our “families”. Junior Kindergarten students have been exploring their own families and the families of their friends to learn all about different family structures, traditions, and beliefs.
In honour of Orange Shirt Day, we asked some of our Grade 5 students what it means to them.

In Mrs. Marie Clement’s Grade 7 Individuals and Societies classes, learning about ancient economies usually happens through an experiential, hands-on approach.
With the start of our hybrid learning program, Mrs. Heather Nicholson roamed the playgrounds and classrooms to interview (two metres apart, of course!) students who came back to class. She wanted to know how it was going, what they liked and didn’t like about being back.
Early last week, students logged-on and were led through a virtual tour of the Paul Getty Museum. Together, the classes wandered and observed the many paintings, illustrations, and sculptures throughout the halls. They discussed the art, made comments, and asked questions.
What would I have felt on March 13, the day we all left school for Spring Break, knowing that I might not return until the start of grade 12? As bad as it sounds, I was relieved. I was happy to hear I would no longer have to wake up early or wear a uniform each day, and that I would be, instead, learning in the comfort of my own home. But I was wrong to feel relieved.
